Hylda Baker - Nearest and Dearest / The More You Laugh (1969)

Novelty record by miss malaprop hersylf, Hylda Baker (4 February 1905 -- 1 May 1986) who was a British comedienne, actress and music hall star. 'Nearest and Dearest' was the sitcom she did with Jimmy Jewell in the late 60s and early 70s and the A Side is the theme tune to the series with added words (words were also added for the feature film version although it was a different recording than this one). She would later have novelty hits with comics versions of pop songs such as 'You're The One That I Want' with Arthur Mullard which led to a few others.
